Charles McPherson Quartet: American Jazz Legend

“Premium” is Montmartre’s series of rare intimate concerts with jazz giants that you cannot normally meet on small intimate stages. These concerts are priced above the normal tickets to cover costs and travel for these heavy-weights.

Alto player Charles McPherson’s fine sound played a leading role in Clint Eastwood’s excellent movie about the life of jazz-legend Charlie Parker, ”Bird”; providing the sound for actor Forest Whitaker’s brilliant performance as Parker. McPherson was for many years closely connected to jazz-legend Charles Mingus, and he was an often-used sideman when the authentic jazz-feeling was needed. McPherson also led own groups, always focusing on genuine and heartfelt swing – more than on a ground-breaking approach. His playing today contains the same values. Charles McPherson – now in his 80th year – still represents onrushing, physical and a devil-may-care musical expression, directly from the heart of jazz itself.

I Clint Eastwoods fine film om legenden Charlie Parker, ”Bird”, havde McPhersons altsaxspil en fremtrædende rolle; den gav simpelthen lyd til Forest Whitakers præstation som Parker, og modtog fine omtaler verden over. McPherson var i mange år tæt knyttet til Charles Mingus, og han var en ofte benyttet sideman, når den autentiske lyd stod i centrum. Han har også ledet egne grupper, og altid med fokus på det gedigent swingende, og mindre på om musikken var grænsenedbrydende. Og sådan er det stadigvæk i Charles McPhersons 80. år; fremadbrusende, fysisk og fanden-i-voldsk musikalsk udtryk fra jazzens inderste sjæl.
